Telescope is about 5' long, white with spotting scope on the side and wood tripod. Came in a nice wood box with green felt where the telescope came in contacted the wood ...The telescope was sold by a family member and a real estate agent without the consent of LaBoda, who is offering a $100 reward to anyone who finds it. If you see or hear anything pertaining to the telescope, reach out to LaBoda on Facebook and help him out.
My father, who was a mechanical engineer, built it and polished the lenses by hand back in the 60’s. We used to set it up in the backyard during the summer to look at stars.
